Star Screen Awards: Rajkummar Rao wins Critic Choice Award for Newton

Rajkummar has a lot going for him this year. The versatile actor was quite excited to receive the Critics Choice Best Actor award for his film, Newton at the Screen Awards 2017 held recently in Mumbai.

It’s a double whammy for the powerhouse performer as he walked away with another prestigious award at the ceremony – Best Supporting Actor for Bareilly Ki Barfi.


Rajkummar says, "I would like to thank the director of Newton, Amit Masurkar, producers Aanand L Rai and  Manish Mundra without their support the movie wouldn't have been made. I would also like to thank the audience for giving so much love to Newton and if you continue doing that I'm sure we will be able to make 10 more Newton."

With five impressive releases so far – Trapped, Behen Hogi Teri, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana and the latest one being Newton, the year undoubtedly belongs to Rajkummar Rao! The versatile actor is also eagerly awaiting for his upcoming web series Bose to be streamlined on ALTBalaji. 

Rajkummar was recently bestowed upon Asia’s highest honor ‘Asia Pacific Screen Award’ for Newton and 'Indian of the Year' CNN News 18 award. The versatile actor, who has honored with a National Award four years ago, is now unabashedly breaking the rules on his way to stardom, starring in a web series titled Bose, making a smart move by catering to the digital audience, after delivering box office hits.
